Thank you Christophem for responding.

I changed my cache from 512 to 4096. The problem still occurs, but  I
got feeling it happens a little bit less, but this can also be because
it takes a hole lot longer to startup the dvb-t channel (especially with
audio only streams, but with audio only there is also no TS detection
starup problem)

I attached my mplayer dvb-t wrapper script for some extra info.

Kind regards,
